Sten F Odenwald Quotes

"Quantum fluctuations are, at their root, completely a-causal, in the sense that cause and effect and ordering of events in time is not a part of how these fluctuations work. Because of this, there seem not to be any correlations built into these kinds of fluctuations because law as we understand the term requires some kind of cause-and-effect structure to pre-exist. Quantum fluctuations can precede physical law, but it seems that the converse is not true. So in the big bang, the establishment of law came after the event itself, but of course even the concept of time and causality may not have been quite the same back then as they are now."

Yuval Levin Quotes

"The idea of forcing every thing to an artificial equality has something, at first view, very captivating in it," Burke writes. "It has all the appearance imaginable of justice and good order; and very many persons, without any sort of partial purposes, have been led to adopt such schemes and to pursue them with great earnestness and warmth."

Quotes About Cuddle

"Minutes passed by. A little blue butterfly landed on my nose. I blinked at it and it fluttered to my ear. A big yellow butterfly gently floated over and landed on my paw. Soon a whole swarm of them floated up and down around me, like a swirl of multicolored petals. It happened in my backyard, too, if the magic was strong enough. Butterflies were small and light, and very magic sensitive. For some reason I made them feel safe and they gravitated to me like iron shavings to a magnet. They ruined my ferocious badass image, but youd have to be a complete beast to swat butterflies.If a baby deer frolicked out from between the buildings trying to cuddle up, I would roar. I wouldnt bite it, but I would roar. I had my limits." - Author: Ilona Andrews

Quotes About Memorized

"Developing spiritual strength doesnt come from leaning back; it comes from pressing forward, constantly seeking more light and knowledge from heaven." In my undergraduate days, I memorized this saying: ‘On the plains of hesitation are bleached the bones of countless thousands who, at the Dawn of Victory, stopped to rest, and resting, died. We cannot rest. Learn, lead, build, press forward." - Author: Elder Neil L. Andersen

Quotes About Funny Led Zeppelin

"Brooding is more something I do when Im working. I know so much more about sitting around worrying about a work project than I do about worrying about kids. This could just be a fact of life for older moms. Weve worked and worked and worked and if we are lucky enough to finally have a child or two, we find ourselves suddenly catapulted into a most alien kind of chaos. Work is so much easier. Anyone will tell you that. To have a desk, where you have everything all lined up, and a schedule you more or less get to agree to. Work. I am a worker. This is so funny because I never really think of my work as work. I certainly never though of myself as having a career. Writing, work, this is just who I am. I am a person who sits at a desk and makes phone calls and taps at a computer keyboard and sips coffee and calls her mom at five. That I am anything better or smaller than that has come as sudden news to me. Brand new.News." - Author: Jeanne Marie Laskas

Quotes About Hypomania

"I know the empathy borne of despair; I know the fluidity of thought, the expansive, even beautiful, mind that hypomania brings, and I know this is quicksilver and precious and often its poison. There has always existed a sort of psychic butcher who works the scales of transcendence, who weighs out the bloody cost of true art." - Author: David Lovelace

Quotes About Serious Relationships

"Peacemaking contains all the elements of the Christian faith. Peacemaking is the result of not only taking the beatitudes seriously, but living them. It involves right relationships. Right relationships with God, right relationships with Gods people and right relationships with Gods creation. It involves love. Proper love of self, love of God and creation, and love of all people—even our enemies. It is not passive, it is active; it is peacemaking not peacekeeping. Above all, it is following the way of Jesus, which was the way of the cross, where his power was made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9)." - Author: Donald R. Clymer

Quotes About Drone Attacks

"Islamo-Fascism is NOT the result of economic deprivation or legitimate blowback because of Western foreign policies or even heinous drone attacks on Muslim civilians. All non-Muslims as Infidels, regardless of their faith or lack of it, are in an ideological war with a demonized, freedom-hating Muslim death-cult rooted in their accurate interpretation of the Quran!" - Author: Gary Patton

Their eyes get all big. Its awesome. I love little kids, man. Theyre the cutest" - Author: Libba Bray
